How to Keep Your Chevy Running Smoothly in Van Wert

Is it time for your pitstop? Whether you're driving on the race track or driving along the highway in Van Wert or Decatur, sooner or later, you'll need a pitstop sooner or later. But, when will you need it? What services will you need to get done? How often should you have one? If you've ever questioned how to keep your Chevy running smoothly through the life of your loan or lease, then you're at the right place. You'll find the answers to all those questions and more right here at Lee Kinstle Sales & Service.

What is a Service Interval?

A service interval is your recommended maintenance schedule for your particular make and model. Each automaker has a set time for each model to be inspected for performance and quality throughout its lifetime. The key to a well-performing vehicle is ensuring that your components are operating as expected. This is outside of regular oil changes, which should happen every 3,000-7,000 miles, fluid level top-offs, etc.

If you skip your service interval checks, you could risk major damage to your vehicle down the line. Preventative maintenance is key for a happy vehicle and a happy driver in Fort Wayne. Here are the Chevy recommended service intervals.

15,000-Mile Service

At this point, your Chevy is just over a year old. The first official maintenance check will be fairly simple for our professional mechanics at Lee Kinstle Sales & Service. Our team will check underneath your hood to inspect your components for wear and tear or damage. Your air filter may need replacing, and there may also be a tire rotation on the table.

Services Provided

  • Oil Change
  • Fluid Level Check
  • Tire Rotation/Balance
  • Air Filter Check/Replacement

30,000-Mile Service

Your next visit will occur about a year or a year and a half later. At this time, our professional mechanics will inspect your vehicle a bit more thoroughly. Many items checked at the 15,000-mile service will be inspected again, but this comprehensive examination will include more components.

Services Provided

  • Overlapping Services from Previous Mileage Check
  • Brake Pad Inspection/Replacement
  • Suspension and Shock Check
  • Fuel Filter Check/Replacement

60,000-Mile Service

At this point, you've become well-acquainted with your once-new Chevy. You've had four years of ownership underneath your belt, which means more components will need inspection or replacing. There is a more in-depth inspection as our professionals check for wear and tear, or possible trouble down the line.

Services Provided

  • Overlapping Services from Previous Mileage Checkup
  • Battery Replacement
  • Brake Rotor Inspection/Replacement
  • Check for Wear and Tear on Belts and Hoses
  • Transmission Fluid Replacement (if needed)

90,000-Mile Service

At about six years in, your vehicle will be closely inspected as it rounds out the final service interval check. By now, your Chevy will have gone through the gauntlet, and everything that needs replacing or repair will happen at this time. Our professionals will inspect your Chevy and ensure that it will be ready to handle the next 90,000 miles on the road in New Haven, IN, or Fort Wayne.

Services Provided

  • Overlapping Services from Previous Mileage Checkup
  • Complete Inspection of Every Component
